Boulder, CO (PRWEB) April 15, 2014
The Tea Spot announces today the upcoming introduction of its new line of certified organic loose leaf teas in retail-ready gift tins. The Tea Spot’s organic tea collection will symbolically launch on Earth Day, Tuesday, April 22nd, 2014.
Market demand for organic tea has been growing steadily over the past 15 years as consumers continue to become more educated about natural and healthy beverage options for the whole family. The Tea Spot’s commitment to offering a variety of loose leaf organic teas supports their customers’ need for more natural and sustainable alternatives. The Tea Spot now has two dozen certified organic teas to meet these rising demands. The loose leaf tea company prides itself on being able to offer a wide variety of traditional teas and herbal teas, as both single-estate teas and blends, all grown without the use of harmful pesticides or chemicals.
The wholesale demand for organic teas in retail-ready packaging is what drove the company’s decision to launch this new series of tea tins. “Feedback from customer previews of our organic loose leaf tea tins has been overwhelmingly positive,” stated company CEO Maria Uspenski, “so we’re extending our commitment to organic products by making this new line of tinned teas available for both domestic and international wholesale customers. The teas we chose to package in these striking, yet elegant tins, are our top-selling organic loose leaf teas. They already have a tremendous following and we know they have a proven track record of re-purchase. Many of our most dedicated customers look for organic options above any others, so we’re happy to expand our tea tin collection in that direction.”
In addition, the company is making the organic loose leaf tea tins directly available to retail customers at its online tea store, http://theteaspot.com, both as individual tins and as part of an organic tea set with eight tea tins. Those will be available for sale as of Earth Day 2014. The Tea Spot’s online newsletter subscribers will be privy to an advance sale on the organic tea tins.
